Romanian harlequin cake

A slightly different version of this dessert. This time we were inspired more in the East, more precisely in Romania. This cream cake recipe contains only a minimal amount of cream, but it is still delicious. The cake is inspired by the Italian comedy character and her colorful appearance rather than a typical whipped cream bomb.

For the dough

  1. 250 g butter (softened)
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 85 g sour cream
  4. 150 g of powdered sugar
  5. 2 spoons of vanilla sugar
  6. 525 g plain flour
  7. 3 teaspoons of baking powder

For filling

  1. 400 g of plum jam
  2. 200 g of apricot jam

For the glaze

  1. 4 egg yolks
  2. 100 g of powdered sugar
  3. A spoonful of lemon juice
  4. ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  5. 150-200 g colored sprinkles for the top layer (optional)


  1. Place the butter, eggs, cream, sugar and vanilla sugar in a bowl
  2. Mix everything to a creamy consistency
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour and baking powder
  4. Then mix the dry ingredients with the rest of the wet ingredients
  5. Turn the mixture out onto a floured work surface and knead
  6. Wrap the smooth dough in cling film and let it rest in the fridge for an hour
  7. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  8. Divide the dough into four equal parts and roll them into rectangles of the same size (approx. 23×30 cm)
  9. Place them on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 10 minutes
  10. Let them cool after removing from the oven
  11. When the carcasses are baked and cooled, spread them alternately with jams
  12. The first layer will be molasses, the second will be apricot and the third will be molasses again
  13. We place the last corpus on top and gently press it against the others
  14. For the glaze, mix egg yolks, powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract
  15. We will start coating the upper body with glaze
  16. Decorate the cake with colored sprinkles and let the cake rest until the glaze dries

The cake must be made at least two days, preferably three days in advance.
The dessert can also be sprinkled with roasted and chopped nuts of any kind or with chocolate sprinkles.

Egg white cream cake without flour

Finally, here is a really simple recipe for egg white cake without flour. We only need three ingredients to make it, and if you replace the vanilla extract with sugar, then only two. The cake will be fluffy like a cloud and sweet thanks to the caramel on its surface. Before serving, it is a good idea to add whipped cream to the cake, supplemented with, for example, mascarpone or some other extract, which will enhance its taste and add a nice aroma to the cake.
